I had my first doc appt 2 weeks ago, and they said I had a prolapsed uterus. Well, my next appt is a week from today (they are supposed to give more info), but I am dying of impatience whilst striving not to worry. I know that a prolapsed uterus means that your uterus has slipped down into your vagina (mostly because when I stand all day I can see part of mine hanging out - sorry, tmi). My cervix literally dwells at my vaginal opening. This is obviously painful, but more importantly, it seems pretty dangerous to me. My main worry stems from the fact that I can barely ever feel the baby, and I am 15w along (I felt my son at 14w and my daughter at 12w). Has anyone been through this before? Info on this condition while pregnant seems to be difficult to locate. Thanks for any help you can offer to a curious soul.

I do not know much about a prolapsed uterus...but I wouldn't worry about not feeling the baby yet. I didn't feel my daughter until 18 weeks. Some babies are just more active than others. But if you are really worried..which I would be too if I were in your shoes...CALL YOUR DOCTOR. Let your doctor know about your worries. They should reassure you everything is alright or they should let you know what the risks are. Get on the phone and bug the heck out of them!

I know a little about it. I had an incident back in the fall where I had a really bad case of bronchitis and my uterus slipped from all the coughing. Fortunately for me it went back in place after I was over the cold. I remember being really freaked out about it. From what I remember reading, often times the uterus moves up as pregnancy progresses. I know my midwife told me they basically can put something in there to hold it up. I am sorry I am not more help.

Hey ladies, thanks for the info that you could provide. I hope this one does move up soon. I'm beginning to think that I can't feel the kiddo 'cause he/she is so low. Thanks for the reassuring thoughts. Anyone else?

My mother had this problem 25 years ago when preggo with my brother.

Unfortunately, they didn't have the same technology then that they do now. Her water ended up breaking at 24 weeks and she delivered my brother at 26 weeks. He is a perfectly healthy. .. genious. She continued after that without getting it fixed till she finally needed a hysterectomy. Her bladder ended up dropping from it too

Thanks for your mom's story. Although it is scary, it lets me know that the doc NEEDS to take this seriously. Last time, they said "It's not an emergency or anything. Come back in 3 weeks." They didn't give me any restrictions, but I've been taking it easy nevertheless, and now I'm glad that I have. She also said that they can't really do much about since I'm already pregnant, so I guess we'll see if there have been any technological advances. Hopefully, they know more about the situation now and how to monitor it. I was supposed to take a trip around the time the I was 25 weeks. Looks like I may have to forego it.

Thanks for posting those links. Unfortunately, there seems to be very little info about it during pregnancy.

If you are really worried about the baby, why now invest in a featal dopler, its a sonic device that lets you listen to the babies heart beat. I loved it. The other lids love it too. I bought mine at www.unavida.co.uk.

It may help, good luck with the prolapse though try pulling in when you are sitting down might help strengthen the muscles.
